A stronger magnet will work. Or stick a screw in it and pull it out.

I use a circle ring tool, just pull in against the inner small recess of filter and pull out, might take a try or two but always comes out.

Today I noticed that my cheap rear tire was starting to show signs of an early spring - hopefully. It hasn't even seen any gnarly riding, just cruising and few miserable power slide attempts here and there.

The telescopic magnet I have isn't strong enough.. but two of them are.
I've also done it with circlip pliers.

The cheap-o telescoping magnet I have wasn't nearly powerful enough to pull it out. I ended up taking my pliers, sticking the tip in the center recess, then, with a hand on either handle, spread the pliers with heavy, but gentle force (how to describe this kind of finesse? I should have been a surgeon... LOL!) and pulled with both lateral and horizontal force till the filter popped past its seat. It's a freakn' PITA, for sure. Someone needs to redesign that filter with some nubby bits a pair of pliers can grab onto better!

Ordered some Leo Vince pipes for mine. Only spent $300 because I had some rebates and gift certificates from a messed up order from this place.... Pretty happy with that price.


Also ordered some new Pirelli's and a Wolfman Enduro pack for a tail bag.

Everything should be here tomorrow.

I just take a flat blade screwdriver, give it a whack to put a hole in the end of the filter and pry/pop it out.

Hey Gents,

What I did to my 990 today is I purchased one!! I thank all of you that post. Your inspirations helped me in my purchase.

Now with over 100 miles in the first day, what a bike. I sold my BMW K1200GT and bought this. What a great change of pace.

Looking forward to contributing to ADV. Farkles and long rides are in the very near future.

This is by far the easiest way. I've used this method on different bikes and it works every time.

Yeah... I guess the "Brute Force" approach works, too.

Then a friend wanders by and using the needle nose pliers pulls it right out!

does any one here have some slick trick to getting the stock oil filter out. there was not much room to work the pliers around and edge, and no lip of any sort to get a grip on it.
[the oil had been drained weeks prior do to a small wreck in which the bike caught fire below the carbs and above the engine. does it usually pop out with the oil coming out?]

I don't know how my buddy did it.
but thank god he did.

I have a big dent in my BDCW skid plate, how in the world I did it I have no idea. It's thick steel. I know I would have just shattered the stock one with that hit.
